Corporate Social Responsibility

At Speexx we are aware of CSR and we are giving back in many ways – by supporting the causes the Speexx family cares about, by donating digital language training to nonprofit projects, and by donating money to charities. We support the UN Global Compact and continue to work on our status as a sustainable enterprise.

United Nations Global Compact

We are proud to participate in the UN Global Compact – a policy initiative for businesses who are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. Speexx proudly supports the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact.
